Bake Craft Sew Decorate


This quick easy DIY Pinecone & Pompom garland is great for the whole holiday season

Hello friends! It is Krista here, from The Happy Housie. I’m super excited to be part of the Bake, Craft, Sew, Decorate series this year!! I am already in full-blown Christmas mode around here and I and plan to spend this month crafting, decorating, shopping, cleaning, organizing, and wrapping so that I can really enjoy my time with friends and family once December arrives.

Since the holidays are such a busy time I love to do craft projects that are quick and easy. I also love adding rustic and natural elements around the holidays; whether it be real greenery from outdoors, or using pinecones and rustic twine in my crafts like I did with this simple DIY Pinecone & Pompom Garland.

This was super easy to make and took me only a few minutes to create an 8′ long garland!

You could use this to decorate your mantel, a window frame, or even make several to wrap around your Christmas tree!

I simply gathered together some small pinecones that my boys and I collected on a walk in a nearby park, as well as some small white pompoms, rustic twine and my glue gun.

Simply decide on your spacing – I put mine every 4″ along. Stretch out your twine, and alternate gluing on a white pompom with a tiny pinecone. To help me keep the spacing consistent, I used a piece of paper the size that I wanted the gap to be as a measure between pompoms & pinecones as I glued them on.

The fabulous thing about this cute little pompom and pinecone garland is that it can suit so many variations on Christmas and Winter decorating.

You could use it from November right through February – from Thanksgiving right up until Spring arrives!

    Those are the cutest DIY decorations I’ve ever seen! Not to mention, quick and easy. As a busy mother, it’s so hard to find time to shop for decorations this coming Christmas. I was thinking of doing this probably next week but with my kids. Pinecones are pretty much everywhere in our place, so looking for them won’t be that hard. 🙂

    Thanks for the DIY tutorial 🙂
